Hi Everyone!

Does anyone have any experience with either Mckinsey's Operational Excellence Program or BCG Inverto interviews? Both of which deal with supply chain/manufacturing type work.

My questions is, do the case interviews for these positions focus solely on operations/supply chain cases? Or am I still likely to encounter more generalist cases (m&a, profitability etc.)?

Hello!

Cases won´t focus solely on operations/supply chain/etc... they will be generalistic ones.

What will most likely happen is that your interviewers are subject experts and they ask you questions focused on the topic -I assume you have background on it-.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

Hi,

You will have both ops and generalist cases. You can have additional ops related questions from dedicated ops partners

Hi Marc,
in Mck ops process (and I think in BCG either) you will handle also generalistic cases.
